Getting the Most Out of Addiction Treatment with Recovery Monitoring

Getting Most Out of Treatment with Addiction Recovery Monitoring - Family First Intervention

When someone who is addicted to alcohol or drugs finally makes the decision to get clean and start the addiction rehab process, the individual and his or her family hope that the recovery will be successful. More specifically, they hope that the loved one will be able to make it through the detox process comfortably, that the journey through rehabilitation will be a success, and that he or she can continue to remain sober long after the treatment process concludes.

Addicts and their loved ones know the challenges that substance abuse recovery will present along the way, and they are aware that there will be bumps in the road to recovery. The main goal in the rehabilitation process is to not let these bumps derail one’s commitment to becoming sober.

With recovery monitoring as a part of the overall treatment plan, it is easier to keep recovery goals in sight and keep on track to making a full recovery.

What Is Recovery Monitoring for Addiction Treatment?

ListThe Recovery Monitoring and Aftercare Compliance Program from Family First Intervention is a way to ensure that a recovery plan and set of recovery goals are established, and that the individual receiving treatment sticks to those goals throughout all phases of treatment.

By monitoring the progress of a loved one’s walk toward sobriety, our program makes sure that the individual is responding well to treatment, and that if a change to the treatment itinerary is needed, it can be made quickly, before recovery is negatively affected.

Addiction Treatment Is a Financial Investment

When a person begins the rehabilitation process, it is an investment in their personal health, wellness and well-being. The individual also makes a financial investment in the process, often seen as out-of-pocket costs, missed wages or as an insurance claim.

Given that there is a big investment of time, money and emotion during rehabilitation, it is only sensible that families will want to ensure that they get the most out of their investment.

With addiction treatment, the return on the investment is seeing a family member get the most out of his or her treatment time and becoming a happier, sober person. For this reason, families can look at the recovery monitoring program as an added layer that helps to ensure that their investment into rehab services pays off.

What Is Included in Family First Intervention’s Recovery Monitoring Program?

The Cycle of Addiction Infographic - Family First InterventionOur Recovery Monitoring and Aftercare Compliance Program first assigns a treatment case manager to the individual who will undergo rehab. The case manager helps the individual and the family with everything that goes into planning to enter treatment – including finding drug and alcohol detox services.

Once the client has been admitted into rehab, the case manager helps him or her to establish goals, or to better understand the goals that the recovery program has established. From there, helping the client to keep these goals in sight throughout recovery is the main focus.

This focus continues even after the treatment phase has ended, whether it was an inpatient or outpatient program, and ensures that the individual is still sticking to his or her goals and is not in danger of relapsing.

Our Recovery Monitoring Program includes the following benefits:

  • Planning and Implementing the Intervention Process
  • Providing Options for Initial Detox and Rehabilitation
  • Assisting Families with the Insurance and Intake Processes
  • Ensuring that the Initial Treatment Options Include Care for Mental Health Issues (If Co-Occurring Disorders Exist)
  • Enrollment in Aftercare Programs and Ongoing Sobriety Support
  • Establishment of Sober Living Arrangements and Housing Assistance (If Needed)
  • Ensuring Accountability and Program Compliance During All Phases of Treatment

Recovery Monitoring Program FAQs

Why the Recovery Monitoring Program Works

Relapse can happen at any point of the recovery process, and if it happens, an individual who returns to using drugs or alcohol needs to be quickly guided back onto the right path to recovery – if the addiction recovery process is to be salvaged.

Some individuals consciously make the choice to relapse, others make a split-second decision that they later regret, and some even relapse when they lose sight of their goal of becoming sober. Whatever the reason, our addiction case managers are there to help the client in recovery make the needed changes to avoid relapse.

Is Addiction Recovery Monitoring Right for Your Loved One?

Arms OutNot only can our program be helpful to individuals and families who are brand new to the treatment process, but recovery monitoring will also help those who have previously been unsuccessful in rehab to find the key to success and lasting recovery.

The process starts with a conversation with our addiction case management specialists, where we build a treatment plan and assess the needs and goals of the family and the addict. Based on this assessment, we can decide which path to recovery should work best for your loved one. Reach out to Family First Intervention today to get started.
